(Good jumbling, but all relatively easy clue words today.  Even “avenue” kinda popped for me.  Probably because we’ve seen it before, jumbled as: VUNAEE.  No new clue words, today.  The answer letter layout was nice and cryptic, and gave away nothing.  It looks like the one server can hear what the other server is saying about her.  Hopefully, the manager doesn’t buy into what the catty one is saying.  The waitresses above and to the side are more to my liking.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Good Science is a fascinating discussion of the way that science routinely transforms fantasies into reality. Through the magic of scientific discovery, the most mind-bending fantasies in one era—from Jules Verne’s Nautilus to Captain Kirk’s talking computer—become bedrock realities in succeeding eras. In agreement with Albert Einstein, Tim McGettigan argues that, when it comes to seeking new truths, imagination is often more important than knowledge. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(This has been said in a number of ways, over countless generations.  On a literal level it’s a major “Duh!” statement.  A tall person can see farther than a short person.  So, if a short person stands on the tall person’s shoulders, now he/she’s just that much taller, and he/she’ll be able to see that much farther than the tall person.  Most of us are relative dwarfs.  However, assuming we can understand the concepts and theories of the great minds that came before us, we can actually see farther than them.  We are all standing on a giant body of knowledge.  And, the giant body of knowledge – through contributions from great and small – is continuously growing.  Each of us, potentially, has the ability to understand more than da Vinci, Newton and Einstein combined.  And our children and grandchildren should be able to understand more than Chomsky, Jobs and Hawking, etc.  This is all very empowering stuff, friends.  Be well, do good . . . and ride high, my friends.)   —   YUR
